Shubb Partial Capo C7b  Nickel Finish I was introduced to the concept of partial capoing many years ago by the great acoustic guitarist Harvey Reid and by Jeff Hickey, who developed the Third Hand capo (an elastic capo designed exclusively for partial capoing). These guys both were users of Shubb capos for "regular" capoing, but were WAY into the possibilities of partial capoing. In addition to us…

While in use, the bronze slide is a hefty, no-compromise tool that features unsurpassed tone and control. When rotated behind the hand (which takes less than a second) it leaves all the fingers free for unencumbered, conventional fretting. It works so well because of the unique 2-piece design: the Delrin "ring" section remains in place on the finger as the bronze "sleeve" section is rotated with t…

Classical & Flamenco Guitar Capos

A Capo is a simple device which clamps onto the neck of your instrument in any position you choose to shorten the playable length of the strings. The pitch of the guitar is altered by half a step for each fret. Playing with a capo affects only the notes of the open strings. All other frets remain the same. However, the use of the capo can affect the tone of the guitar, creating a brighter sound.

The term is a shortened version of capotasto which is Italian for head of the fretboard. Capos are used extensively in the playing of Flamenco and traditional folk music and less frequently in classical and jazz performance. That said, you will find specialist Classical guitar capos as well as those for Flamenco guitar. The capo is a simple way to alter the key of a song to suit a vocalist without having to transpose the chords and can also make some complex arrangements easier to play.

When two or more guitarists are performing together the use of a capo can create a more interesting sound and some striking effects. A partial capo can be employed to barre just some of the strings of the instrument in order to create many tonal variations without having to retune the instrument. A capo is certainly a useful accessory for any Classical or Flamenco guitarist and opens up many new possibilities.
